Purpose of version number install jar installation
I have long wondered what the purpose of including the version number in
the installed name of a jar was. I still see this requirement in the
new policy draft. If this is to support installing multiple versions,
then you obviously need a lot more framework like alternatives or
Replaces in the packages, and a package naming policy that prevents the
packages from removing each other. Besides that, is there any other
point? In any case, please include the rationale in the policy.
